Gyroscopes And Their Types

Gyroscopes are the most important part of an inertial navigation system or any guidance system. Gyroscopes were invented a century ago and have been used as references to know the inertial state of a moving body. From Kettering bug to the Apollo spacecraft, the quality of gyro has determined the performance of the overall mission. It has been a factor behind ‘make or break’ of the many missions.

Effect On The Performance Of The Solar Panels in Cold Climate

Weather conditions, including the temperature in which the solar panels are operating, have a considerable effect on the performance of the solar panels. It might sound counter-intuitive to many of us, but low temperature actually boosts the performance of the solar panels. Solar panels, like any other electronic device, are more productive at low temperatures. As the ambient temperature increases, the efficiency of the panels drops down.
